How to Give Yourself a Black Lace Manicure

How to Give Yourself a Black Lace Manicure

Here's how to give yourself fashionable fingertips in a matter of minutes!
Supplies you will need: Top coat (I used Sally Hansen), scissors, toothpick, and black lace! The top coat is designed to dry hard and protect your nails from scratches and chips. To ensure the lace adheres to the nails, make sure you use the top coat instead of clear polish.
Step 1: Measure and trim the lace to fit each finger nail.
Step 2: Polish a single layer of top coat.
Step 3: Apply the trimmed lace on top of the wet polish.
Step 4: Firmly press the outer corners of the lace with a toothpick.
Step 5: Let the polish and lace dry for a few minutes.
Step 6: Finish with two more applications of top coat. You're all set.
To complete the look, I styled the uber-fun nails with a Ralph Lauren lace top with wing details and a reconstructed vintage lace skirt.
